League of Women Voters to Host Mayoral Candidates Forum


The League of Women Voters will be hosting a virtual Candidates’ Forum on Thursday, March 11 at 7:00 pm for Freeport’s two mayoral candidates, Ronnie J. Bush and Jodi Miller. The Forum will be live-streamed on the Leauge of Women Voters’ Facebook page. The Voice of Freeport is sponsoring the event and will also live-stream the forum on its Facebook page. For individuals not on Facebook, the event can be viewed using this link: http://www.facebook.com/LWVFreeport/live/. Other sponsors include the Rockford Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and Highland Community College Leadership Institute.

The League of Women Voters and Highland Community College Leadership Institute will develop the questions. Although live questions from the audience will not be taken, individuals can submit questions prior to the Candidates’ Forum. Questions for the candidates can be emailed to the League Executive Board Member Sharon Koch at sharon68@hotmail.com. If viewers have questions for the candidates post-forum, they can be sent to the same email. The questions will be forwarded directly to the candidates who have the opportunity to reply. 

The event will be moderated by Patricia Norman, a retired educator and a coordinator of the Freeport Chapter of the NAACP, and timed by Karl Bronn. Candidates will be provided equal time to respond to questions and be given equal time for rebuttal. Dan Dick will be the technical master.
